The multi-element (Ag, Al, Au, Ba, Bi, Ca, Cd, Co, Cr, Cs, Cu, Dy, Er, Fe, Ga, Gd, Ho, In, Ir, La, Lu, Mn, Mo, Nb, Nd, P, Pb, Pd, Pr, Pt, Rb, Re, Rh, Ru, Sb, Sc, Sm, Sn, Sr, Ta, Tb, Th, Ti, Tl, Tm, U, V, Y, Yb, and Zn) concentrations (mu g/kg, fresh weight) in potatoes (Solanum tuberosum, Folva) were investigated in this study. The potatoes were grown in two fertilization practices; one with pig slurry and one with calcium ammonium nitrate at three levels of N fertilization (0, 60, and 120 kg of N/ha). The experiment field was located at the Riser National Laboratory Agronomy Farms in Roskilde, Denmark. High-resolution-inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (HR-ICPMS) was used for analyses of the samples. The effect of three levels of N fertilization on elemental concentrations of the crop are evaluated by use of discriminant partial least-squares regression (PLS). The results provide useful biological and nutritional information on potatoes.
